    I always thought it was weird how everybody on INTPcentral would bitch about their ESFJ mom. Is it really possible that all those INTPs had an ESFJ mom? I somehow doubt it.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I remember that. I'm pretty sure it was a good example of mass hysteria. Probably INTPcentral itself was a good example of mass hysteria.

    Yes, it was extremely common, from what I remember.

    Yeahhh, no. I think everyone and their mom just thinks that they have an ESFJ mom because ESFJs often assume caregiver like roles. I would also be curious to know how many of these INTPs who are allegedly "scarred by their ESFJ mothers" still live in said mother's basement.

    I kind of don't understand this myself? Sorry to jump into your guys conversation. I just don't think everyone thinks their mom is an ESFJ, alothough I suppose you're exaggerating to make a point? Personally, my mom's an ISTP, & she's far from being a "caregiver".

    ^ Agreed.

    More generally, a lot of people think they have SJ parents/grandparents because in their mind, authority figure = SJ.

    A whole lot of people do on typology forums. Not as much in real life.

    i'm not exactly INTP and my mom's not ESFJ but a woman who i consider a sort of a second mom is an ESFJ very religious and head strong it's her way or no way. but she cares she does. and I don't think i was scarred by her, but i know when she tells me to pray about it or that jesus will make it alright, i just nod and pretend to agree. anyways she's not been in good health lately she has diabetes and health complications from that and is in her 60s. and she was in the er a week ago. and my mom told me then the next day she goes yeah i'm going to a funeral. I was like "was it her"? and my mom goes no it was someone from work's husband, and said if she died i'd tell you. and I was like good, because i'm coming home for that. even if it's not an excused absent i'm gonna be like we might not be blood related might not even be the same race but she's family. as you can see my mom's probably not an ESFJ cuz i don't trust her to tell me something important like that.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I wonder if what a lot of people see as Fe is actually person focused Se

    This head strong my way or highway doesn't sound like harmonizing Fe to me

    It definitely can be Fe, no doubt about it.

    This brings up a question I've had about Fe for a while now. Bear with me 'cause I'm barely (hah) awake.

    What are the different ways for Fe to manifest? Maybe in a good, bad, and ugly kind of way? I'm used to seeing the harmonizing descriptions and while I can recall instances of my own behavior matching that, by and large I feel like my Fe is somethign more...adaptive? As in, trying to integrate but no so much with the desire to bring unity to a group and more about feeling things out and trying to get a sense of the kind of people I'm dealing with so I can better react to them, I guess?

    Anyway, i'm wondering if these are just different forms of Fe? Or is it the difference between a clear Fe lead and one filtered through two other functions? Or maybe I'm mixing up Fe with Ne or Se a little bit.

    ESFJs (and others for whom it applies), is there a pattern to how your Fe manifests? What influences, if any, do you think your supporting functions have on it?
